Thinking today about where we are versus where we were. 

Tony Barbee was in Auburn four years.  Only once a team he coached win more games in a season than Auburn's already won so far this year.

Jeff Lebo was in Auburn six years.  Only twice did his teams win more than 14 games in a season. 

Barbee's Auburn teams won a total of 49 games. Lebo's Auburn teams won a total of 96 games.  Combined, that's 145.  Average 14.5 per year.  Between the two of them, a total of four seasons with more than 14 wins, only one season with more than 20. 

That's a whole decade of suck. 

In seven years, Pearl's teams won 139 games.  Only two seasons out of eight (including this one) where his teams won less than 14 games.  Six seasons over 14. 

AU has been ranked in the final AP poll eight times in history (since 19-fucking-05). Of those eight, three were under Pearl.  *There is a travesty there, finishing 14th in the season AU made the Final Fucking Four.*

Cliff Ellis and Sonny Smith (considered AU's two best coaches of the modern era) had a combined total of five 20-win seasons over the course of 21 years.  Pearl already has three and an almost certain fourth this season.

GF is right.  What we're seeing now is unprecedented.  AU should give Bruce Pearl anything and everything he wants.  Forever.  If at some point in the near future we aren't playing in The Pearl with his statue out front and a 90-foot tall painting of him with a halo around his head hanging from the rafters.... well.... we deserve what we get.

Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Apparently, you know very little about college basketball.  The Zags dominated Santa Clara Barbara, Mount St. Benedictine Mary's, and Pueblo College at San Louis Obispo.  A veritable gauntlet.  A murderer's row, I tell ya'.

Troof.  Pearl really lucked out this year without Father McGivney and Barry on the schedule.  People will really question our strength of schedule, but I don't care.  Let the chips fall where they may.

I don't think so.  Did you see Newell's reasoning for ranking AU 9th?

Well, ummm... best resume in basketball without a doubt.  But if maybe they played a bunch of teams on a neutral floor they might lose to some of them.  So I'm not changing that. 

He moved us DOWN a spot (to behind Kansas) after two wins last week.  If he'd left us where we were the week before AU would be #1. 

I have zero confidence he'd move us up.  If anything he might move us down again.   

None of this matters, though.  March is what matters.  It's surreal sitting here mid January not wondering if there might be enough miracles left on the schedule to maybe, possibly, hopefully get a tournament invite.  And by that I mean NIT.

The numbers will get harder for him to defend.

Last week we beat an unranked OM and #24 Bama.  This week we'll have unranked UGA and #12 UK.

Last week Gonzaga had unranked BYU and Santa Clara.  This week, unranked USanFran and Loyola.  In fact, not another ranked team on their schedule at this point.
